How Botox stops signs of aging in their tracks
Each and every day, we are forming a range of expressions on our faces — from happy to angry to everything in between. With each smile and frown, our skin is being pulled and folded, eventually leaving its mark in the form of dynamic lines and wrinkles. The magic behind injectable treatments like Botox is in the purified protein botulinum toxin. When injected into the underlying facial muscles, it helps to soften expressions and gradually smooth away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to resume your day with little to no discomfort or downtime. In the following weeks, you will begin noticing gradual improvements in the look of your skin. Surface lines and wrinkles will continue to fade, restoring a naturally youthful appearance. Results from these injectable treatments typically last anywhere from 3-6 months and can be performed 2-3 times a year to keep the signs of aging at bay.

Like Botox, Dysport also uses a purified form of botulinum toxin to help relax the underlying facial muscles and improve the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles. Dr. Petropoulos recommends Dysport for the treatment of the vertical lines that form between the brows due to repeated muscle contractions such as squinting or frowning. The appearance of these glabellar lines can be dramatically improved by carefully injecting Dysport in the treatment area, causing the muscles to relax and the skin’s surface to gradually smooth itself out. The use of Dysport also helps to prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
